The fashion industry is a sneaky devil in a pretty dress. Gazed was created in 2018 by three Polish gals who wanted to change that. We were tired of regularly wearing and throwing away our overpriced fast-fashion clothes. We couldn’t stand the lack of transparency of brands that we invest our money in. We realized it is not only bad for the environment but it is also a huge waste of time. Fast fashion has to go! We know it can be done better and smarter.

The essence of a mindful life extends well beyond yoga practice, nutrition choices and even activism because

it’s what we buy that matters.

We often talk about how important it is to know where your food comes from, but we rarely discuss the origin of our clothes. We are not detached enough to think that clothes grow in shops. Still, the production of clothes is too far removed— we don’t even think to ask who made our clothes.

By becoming a mindful consumer, we affect not only the laws that govern the textile industry but also make an impact on well being and health of millions of people and our planet. Slow fashion means fewer pollutants in our air and water, smaller soil erosion, less fossil fuel usage, better work conditions and much fewer harmful effects on our bodies and the future of our planet.
